A dentist will often recommend implants or dentures if you have lost one or more teeth. These are frequently made of either porcelain or acrylic and choosing the right material is key in terms of longevity. What are a handful of factors to take into account?
- While porcelain is brittle, it is less likely to stain.
- Acrylic teeth are better for those with reduced jaw bone density.
- Porcelain tends to be more durable over time.
“Tooth loss is unpleasant to face, but well-fitted partial or full dentures can be indistinguishable from your natural teeth.”
Your dentist can help you weigh the benefits of each type and help you decide what’s best for your situation.
